Early Childhood – Preschool – Curriculum

Rio International School Preschool program stives to develop a young student’s natural curiosity and stimulates a love of learning. This is achieved through our play-based program, hands-on studying experiences, project-based learning, an increased sense of belonging, socialization and integration during the most influential time in a student’s development.


Digital Life





Social Emotional Learning

Our little students are introduced to word and creation and begin to see their community as part of family, learning to be generous, kind-hearted and forgiving in their friendships as they grow together.

RIS Pre-K 3, for 3 and 4-years-old, and RIS Pre-K 4, for 4 and 5-years-old, curriculum are based on current practices and exclusive where learning is at the center, both socially and academically. Our students explore concepts, ideas and issues that are of global and local importance.

We begin with the submersion of the English language while integrating arts, music, digital life, physical education, improving gross and fine motor skills, as well as other cognitive aspects. They begin to understand and express ideas and information with confidence and creativity in more than one language and in diverse ways. They work, in collaboration with others, effectively and willingly.

Our Preschool International program is designed to provide as much one-to-one contact between teachers and students. Our aim is that our children can see RIS as a and your second home.
